“We are very excited about the production potential for this well.”
FTTN has completed drilling at South Lake Charles to a total depth of over 15,300 feet. While the last suite of well logs is still being conducted, the logs conducted in the last several days of various shallower intervals in the well provide reason for optimism. Based on initial well analysis, a tangible increase in gas units and the presence of C1-C5 gas is present in several potentially productive horizons encountered during drilling operations. Given the preliminary results, FTTN believes the well has the potential to be a very lucrative asset in the company portfolio.
“Log analysis is one of the first steps in evaluating a newly drilled well; while several horizons look promising, our next step is to gather core samples for analysis and shortly thereafter start flow testing to see just how big of an asset we have discovered,” FTTN Interim CEO Robert Federowicz said.
Initial reserve estimates for the South Lake Charles Prospect projected approximately 60 billion cubic feet of gas and four million barrels of oil could be extracted.
“Those estimates are still in play,” Federowicz said. “We are very excited about the production potential for this well.”
